The Arverne East project area is roughly 116.5 acres of City-owned property to the south of the Edgemere Study Area, bounded by Edgemere Avenue to the north, Rockaway Beach and Boardwalk to the south, Beach 32nd Street to the east, and Beach 56th Place to the west. The project was approved in 2008 but the housing market crash and Superstorm Sandy delayed the project for several years. The project is designated to a development team comprised of L+M Development Partners, Inc., Triangle Equities Development Company LLC, and The Bluestone Organization, Inc. Today, HPD and the development team will proceed with a revised proposed plan through the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) for Urban Development Action Area Project (UDAAP) designation and a map amendment for part of the development site in Fall 2020. The proposed mixed-use, mixed-income neighborhood development will be located between Beach 32nd Street and Beach 44th Street. The plan proposes 1,650 housing units (80% affordable and 20% market-rate) with a mix of multi-family dwellings and one- to two-family houses, including a bungalow-inspired building typology. The plan also proposes approximately 250,000 square feet of retail space, including a boutique hotel. 22,000 square feet will be dedicated to community facility space and 10,000 square feet to a local brewery. A 35-acre nature preserve and comfort station with public restroom, to be built before any housing is completed, will be located between Beach 44th Street and Beach 56th Place, and managed by the Department of Parks and Recreation.
